Tuesday 1st Oct saw our first sports competition of the year, Cross Country at New River S.C. Coldfall did very well finishing third overall for the primary girls and 3rd for the primary boys.

In terrible weather conditions and with a record turnout of 295 girls and 306 boys from both Haringey primary and secondary schools our 3rd place finishes were a great result.  In a combined result of 41 primary and secondary teams Coldfall boys finished 12th overall and the girls team finished 13th overall. This is an amazing achievement considering we had a number of year 5’s running against secondary school children up to year 12.

A special mention has to go to Ivy Gray of year 6 who finished 38th overall in the girls’ race and seventh out of all of the primary school runners to earn a place on the Haringey team. The children selected to represent Haringey at the cross-country championship will run at Hampstead Heath later in the year. Well done Ivy we are all extremely proud of you.
